WINNIPEG, MB., February 7, 2018 – The Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference announced Wednesday that Kiran Hodges from the Providence Pilots women’s futsal team and Mark Ridd from the Red River College Rebels men’s basketball team have been named Athletes of the Week.
The second-year 6’7 forward, a graduate of Oak Park, was a big part of the Rebels weekend sweep of the Pilots that clinched them the final spot in the championship. This weekend, Mark averaged 10.5ppg, 15rpg, and 3.5bpg on 67% shooting from the field.
“Mark dominated the paint on the defensive end of the floor,” said head coach Scott Kirkpatrick. “His leadership on that end and his composure on the offensive end of the floor were a large part of the reason we were able to win 2 key games and get back to the MCAC finals this season.”
The Rebels will meet the CMU Blazers this weekend in the 2018 MCAC Basketball Championship at Providence at 2:00PM.
